DON'T VOTE FOR THIS GUY!!!!He does not care about justice. All he wants is for you to settle in a ridiculous compromise so he doesn't have to hold court. ONCE A CASE IS PRESENTED, HE CAN'T REMEMBER WHAT HE WAS SUPPOSED TO RULE ON. NOT FIT TO BE JUDGE!!!
The race for Bossier and Webster Parish District Judge is on and the incumbent, Judge Burchett, is long overdue to be replaced. He has demonstrated his lack of concern for determining the truth through his unprovoked ranting and his wandering, incoherent rulings that sometimes fail to even address the issues on which he was to rule. His ads speak of his judicial temperament, when in fact those who have appeared before him see that he is easily agitated and completely put out by having to listen to a case.Since appearing before him in a civil matter, I have researched his background and found that his behavior in my particular case was not isolated and was in fact quite normal for him. He failed to pay attention to most of the arguments and at times seemed to either be asleep or in a trance. He didn't rule until weeks later, but then failed to address many of the key points in the case.If you have not seen him in action, all I can say is do some research before casting a ballot for this man. Fairness and justice are not on the top of his priority list and we should all band together to make a change for the better.
